Of course there are, us nutjobs are all over [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img].
If you look in higher traffic areas like varminthunter.org the have the go go varmint go message board with lots of shooters. You can post a note at your closest shooting range, gun store.
Reloading is $$$$ and a huge pain, so its better to have someone show you and see all what is envolved. If you find a friend that reloads you can possibly just buy dies,bullets powder primers and use his press and trimmer and tools. Also like I said save your brass and you can reload it with a leeloader which only costs $20 and will probably shoot as good if not better because you have more options espically at short range.

Reloading give you what you want. Speed, accuracy, bullet type. You can taylor you loads for what ever you want, lees recoil, quieter, faster, bullet type, adjust bullet and powder for accuracy. It is a pain though, lots of $$$. So keep it simple.

Yeah the $$ is the main prob, most likely. I'm not into getting that deep, as of now. I might not ever do it... it might be ready but i'm not someone to do something like that when I can just go buy the ammunition.

Reloading gives your rifle the ability to perform the way it should (accuracy). Its also cheaper to reload in the long run then buying $20 box of shells everytime you want to go shoot. I also like the satisfaction I get from taking animals and seeing how accurate my ammunition is that I made up myself. Its a hobby all in itself. The initial cost might look scary, but if you shoot more then the average guy, you'll end up saving money in a year or two.

Well I dont really shoot much, and when I do its for a reason... like sighting in my scope or hunting and such.

There are those occasions where I do shoot a good amount, not to much though... When I do shoot a lot I will use Bulk Ammunition from Cabela's. It's great stuff for the price, doesnt screw up the barrel or anything.

It's good because its newly manufactured, and the company that makes it actually understands what crappy ammunition can do you your weapon. Check out the reviews, they are good [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]. Also, there are some tracer rounds, they are newly manufactured also (from what I remember), I talked to Cabela's about it.

Here's the link to both of them:

Bulk .30-06 Ammunition
Bulk .30-06 Tracer Ammunition
